Cheshire Fey Cat by Carolina-Eade Cheshire Fey Cat by Carolina-Eade
There is actually no lore about the Cheshire cat other than Caroll's work on Alice's... so this one was pretty fun to do. Is some sort of a Misterious Guide, whose and answers bring more questions than true answers... but nevertheless, one should take them in consideration... like a Sphinx

Done for Warson Chronicles, Art Dir: Richard Jiang.

This looks likes it was inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland original title, Alice Among the Fairies. Anyway this is beautifully done.

I will say My Neightbourg Totoro and the Cheshire cat, but with a Nordic touch: A Cait sidhe or cat sith.
That was the order from the director. :)

Haha, I love this! I love Cheshire Cat designs in general. This one isn't necessarily my favorite as a straight, classic Cheshire Cat, but it's a great design as a mix of that and the fey concept... actually probably about the coolest way of doing that. Very quirky and hilarious-looking while still looking like a guide as you said. Excellently done!

Delightful work, dear. Such a whimsical way to capture the Cheshire Cat species in a way that doesn't stray too far from the original concept, but instead sheds light on the idea and creates a whole new universe of opportunities. ^-^

Just a little thing that make me curious... the symbol in his forehead means something specifical, or is only aesthetic?

Oh, its a viking Rune, which grants protection and invisibility to the wearer, althou I modified it a bit for aesthetic purposes :) Thanks for noticing!

śgishjŠlmr is the name of the original rune.

Really beautiful, I've always loved seeing peoples original interpretations of the story as well as the versions that are already around, Burton, McGee etc. I love knowing that other people have actually read the book and design the own characters from it, as the book is so vast the images can be interpreted and explored in all sorts of ways, not just one. I really love this :heart:

He's beautiful... and i love your description of him. Being a Caroll fanatic myself. its good to see someone who understands the philosophy of it, and not the mass perversion of psychedelic fantasies everyone else is so obsessed with.... My theory was always that The Cheshire Cat was really the only sane character in the book. Hes basically a Catch 22, He's the only one who admits his madness... but if he can sound mindedly admit it... does that really make him mad? He truly is my favorite character, for all the complexities he brings to the table. Beautiful work.

That is actually the best comment I could have for this illu :D When I was asked to do a Cheshire Cat, it was a challenge, I am too a lover of Caroll's books, and I tried to stay away from the Disney/Burton version (Hope that worked!) And you are right, if he is sane enough to realize he is mad, then he can't be that mad, althou a bit of insanity isn't a bad thing at all... I always saw him as the inner child of Alice...

well, thanks for the comment, you made my day :)

I understand what you mean about trying to stay away from the prefixed version of purple and pink stripes that was drilled into our heads. I had a conversation once about Lewis Caroll's book, Through the Looking Glass" and almost slapped the girl, for telling me that "Walt Disney wrote such a great story, and that other guy, was just on drugs." =>.<= or how often I hear that people don't even know who Lewis Caroll is. It kills me inside!!!


He's definitely NOT Disney or Burton(which is really the same thing... sadly) But just whimsical enough to convey his air of twisted sophistication that only he can achieve. Also His two-toned eyes really aid to his duel personality 'issues'.

This lot of possible interpretations is what turns Alice in a so interesting and fascinating work. It's really horrible that so many people don't know the book, because most of the midia produced taking him as the base focus only in the colorful and attractive aspects of the history, don't taking all the pieces of the complex mind labyrinth that composes the narrative.
